Retention & Student Success knows that besides the students themselves, faculty play the biggest role in the retention of our students. We work collaboratively with faculty who are advocates for student retention and success. Faculty are involved in New Student Orientation, Early Alert, and will be involved in the development of a First-Year Seminar class. Please visit the Retention & Student Success Portal to read articles about how to help students stay in college.
Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE) & Noel-Levitz Student Satisfaction Inventory (SSI) Results
Many faculty want to know what conditions most consistently contribute to a student being retained. According to Vincent Tinto, a leading scholar in the field of college student retention, there are five main conditions for student retention:
- Student expectation to succeed
- Clear and consistent faculty advice
- Provide academic, social and personal support
- Involve students in the institution
- Foster and support learning
